Publisher's Summary

In a fracturing empire spread across savage seas, two young people from different cultures find common purpose.
A nameless girl is the lone survivor when her village is massacred by biomancers, mystical servants of the emperor. Named after her lost village, Bleak Hope is secretly trained by a master Vinchen warrior as an instrument of vengeance.
A boy becomes an orphan on the squalid streets of New Laven and is adopted by one of the most notorious women of the criminal underworld, given the name Red, and trained as a thief and con artist.
When a ganglord named Deadface Drem strikes a bargain with the biomancers to consolidate and rule all the slums of New Laven, the worlds of Hope and Red come crashing together, and their unlikely alliance takes them further than either could have dreamed possible.

Great book and performance

This book is a very fine example of fantasy story in tradition od Scott Lynch and Brent Weeks. Little bit of thievery, little bit of killing a lot of baddies, all wraped in wide-eyed outlook on life youths have. What is fantastic, though, is author's reading of it. I enjoyed every minute of narration. Great job!

DNF

This book read like a middle grade, but could not be with its content. I did not care for the story or the narrator. This one is not for me.
